The waterfall can be divided into two parts. The water overflows from the high rocky cliff from one side of the road, and from another it keeps flowing down, but its movement is narrowed by some small man-made embankments forming a few levels. The necessity of forming man-made constructions regulating water flows was due to desire to use the waterfall as a source of fresh water for locals' needs.
